LAAF is LA’s only International Animation Festival running since 2007. Previous guests and honorees include Brad Bird, Sean Lennon (also Artistic Director), Bill Plympton, Peter Chung, Chris Prynoski, Tom Kenny and Will Vinton.
LAAF 2018 promises to screen even more indie animation than ever before and concentrate on helping animators and creators learn more about the industry – how to sell and find distribution for your work, how to pitch, how to find employment opportunities and how to adapt to current changes in the industry.
